Last year, Ellis Morris completed a sponsored cycle ride in aid of Return to Normandy for the D-Day Veterans.
This year, Ellis has chosen to complete a rowing challenge where he will row the distance of Portsmouth to Normandy, which is 126 miles. He has already begun his training with the support of Pershore Leisure Centre, where he trains three times a week.
Ellis expects that it will take him around 18 hours to complete and this will be done in stages that will be decided nearer the time, which he hopes to complete by May half term.
